Riding Them Hard

May 1, 2017

BIAT wishes to share a recent article on Triple J's HACK program, featuring Jay Borghero who's love for bull riding has seen him knocked out 30 times in one year.

"Bull riding has been called the most dangerous organised sport in the world."

As a part of a new generation of Australian's making money from the sport, Hack's story on Jay details his passion and obsession with bull riding. Alarmingly however, is when desire and obsession to make some potentially serious money overweighs the serious risks concussion and being knocked out can cause.

"Even after being knocked out 30 times in one year, Jay Borghero was convinced there was no better life than bull riding - travelling with your mates, big country crowds, and a pot of money."
